Nottinghamshire County Council

Nottinghamshire County Council coordinates rural touring schemes in Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire on behalf of the partnership of local authorities across each area.

The three touring schemes - Village Ventures (Nottinghamshire), Centre Stage (Leicestershire) and Lincolnshire Rural and Community Touring - support volunteer promoters to programme high quality performances from professional companies and performers in local community venues. By increasing its investment the partnership is supporting the continuation and growth of the schemes in providing access to a wide range of arts activities in rural areas.

Elise Christie receives Sports Award

Nottinghamshire County Council has added its best wishes to local athletes who are to take part in The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics. There is special interest as one of the brightest medal hopefuls is Elise Christie, who was recently named as Nottinghamshire's Sportsperson of the Year. The sports awards, organised by Nottinghamshire County Council and Sport Nottinghamshire, took place in January as a real celebration of grassroots and professional sports in the county, at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham on January 20. Elise spoke about her hopes for the Winter Games in a video address when she received her award from Nottinghamshire County Council Chairman Councillor John Allin. She said: "I am really grateful and thankful that I have got such an amazing award. I have put in a lot of hard work and hopefully I will come back from Sochi with some good news for everyone so thanks for the support!" The British short-track skater, who is based in Nottingham, has just retained her European 1,000m title in her last competition before the Winter Olympics next month. She won the world bronze over 1,000m last year and is considered a real medal hope at the Games which start today. The opening ceremony for the XXII Winter Olympics starts in the Fisht Olympic Stadium in Sochi this afternoon.

Lengthsman Scheme

The Lengthsman scheme is a key part of the implementation of the County Council's Localism Policy. A Lengthsman is the term used for a person in charge of a particular length of road and who maintains the weeds, grass and hedges that surround it. The role dates back to the medieval times when they were required to 'walk the length of the parish', to ensure that the ditches and drains were clear. Over time the role was lost, but we are modernising the scheme to bring it back to Nottinghamshire communities.
